WORKOUT STANDARDS

Workout 1A

The workout begins with the medicine ball on the ground and athlete standing tall. After the call of “3, 2, 1… go,” the athlete will pick up the ball and perform the 100 wall-ball shots. 

Note your tiebreak!
Tiebreak = score Qualifier 1A

After 100 reps are completed, the athlete will directly move to the barbell for performing power snatches. There is NO rest, between workout A & B, the clock continues to run. The athlete will directly continue to the second part of the workout:

Workout 1B

Within the remaining time perform as many reps of power snatches. Pick & prepare your load before starting workout A, changing the plates on the barbell during the workout is not allowed. 


Weight x number of reps = score Qualifier 1B  
So be smart! :-)
